Drogba: 'I am looking forward to a new challenge'

I have considered all the offers I have received in the past few weeks, but feel that Shanghai Shenhua FC is the right move for me at this time.

I am looking forward to a new challenge, to experiencing a new culture, and excited about the new developments in the Chinese Super League.

When Chelsea went to China last year, we had a great time and I met some amazing fans.

I hope to help promote Chinese football around the world and further improve the links between China and Africa.
